Winemaker's Notes:

Fruit was rigorously hand sorted and gently whole cluster pressed. The juice was settled off heavy lees and put to barrel for fermentation. Temperatures were in the 65-72 degree range followed by stirring of light lees for 4 months in barrel. Mostly native yeast and malo-lactic (ML) fermentations with only a few lots fermented using cultured burgundy isolates. Fermentations were complete by March of 2007.

Tasting Notes:

Showing balanced depth and complexity, light straw to golden color, aromas unfold with layers of lemon, pear, apricot and wet stone minerality. This vintage shows crispness on the palate, with a lush and balanced citrus finish. Showing very well now and will continue to gain complexity for 1 - 3 years.
